Demon seeding: "They [the sissy seeded teams] will all be hoping to avoid some of the dangerous non-seeded powerhouses including the Czech Republic and the Netherlands, ranked second and third in the world, who pose the biggest threat to the top teams."

Reason behind seeding: sale of television rights. If one of the Big 8 gets knocked out in early rounds everybody in the home market switches their TVs back to the local soap opera and we don't want that.
